How do you change your default login shell? Use SAM

June 7, 2017

New users sometimes contact the CISL Help Desk to ask how to change their default login shell for the Cheyenne system. The quickest way to do it—for both Cheyenne and Yellowstone—is through our Systems Accounting Manager (SAM). In the “Login Shell” section of your preferences screen, select a system and then click the “Edit” button to make your change. It may take several hours for the change to take effect.
